I get so annoyed by these people. They want something for nothing. I would never give them ANY money. They need to go get a job like the rest of us.

try working downtown Des Moines. They regularly go through our trashcans looking for cans and dig through the ashtrays looking for nearly smoked cigarettes. rarley do they ask for money, instead the ask for cigarettes. I never give them anything because thats just encouraging them to continue. They really should get a job as a laborer or whatever. just quit asking for handouts
